Kusum Kanguru Peak Climbing is a technical peak expedition. It lies in the Khumbu region of Nepal. This peak forms a border between the Hinku valley in the north and the Dudhkoshi valley in the south. Kusum Kanguru is best suited for those who have enough alpine mountaineering experience. Kusum Kanguru peak offers the fantastic panoramic view of the Himalayas like Mt. Everest. Cho-Oyu (8201m), Lhotse (8516m), Makalu (8463m), Nuptse (7855m) Thamserku, and Amadablam.
Kusum Kanguru Peak Climbing is very challenging on all possible routes. To do this expedition we need to follow the Everest Base Camp trail. From Lukla to Manjo we follow a popular trail of Everest. The elevation of this peak is 6367m and there are two approaches to this climb. We trek through the forest of rhododendron and pine. One can also explore various types of flora, fauna, and wildlife.
